Pennsylvania's Historic County Courthouses, a television series created by the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania, showcases courthouses across the state, and the Armstrong County Courthouse will be featured in the series.

Pennsylvania Cable Network filmed footage of the exterior, courtrooms, bell tower and historic jail on May 29.

The series aired its first show in August and will continue airing the five courthouses that were selected until late September. The Armstrong County Courthouse program will air at 7 p.m. Sept. 26 and at 2 p.m. Sept. 28 on PCN.

County Commissioner Robert T. Bower will be featured on a walk through the courthouse and will host the show. Armstrong County Judge James J. Panchik will host a segment and give a history of some prominent judges in the county. Audiences can expect to see areas of the courthouse featured on the show that they may have never seen and hear the rich history of the county and its courthouse, a PCN spokesperson said.

For more information on the television series, contact Kevin Andrews at the Armstrong County Tourist Bureau at 724-543-4003.
